During the COVID-19 pandemic, the photography industry had innovate and adapt to the situation to stay in the business. No longer do photo shoots done in studios or photo spots in the cities, a new trend has emerged: Virtual and Terrace Photo Shoots. These types of photography can be done at the comfort of your own homes, and with strict safety protocols in place.
One of the most popular new way to do photography is through Virtual Photo Shoots, where the session is done through video call with a photographer. With a strong and stable internet connection, the photographer can take good quality photos through the computer screens.
The unique thing about virtual photo shoot is that the photographer would usually use different objects to achieve different visual effects, for example using a piece of glass or blinking lights when taking photos. The model / photo object could also use different properties to enhance the photos, such as flowers or other props they could find at home.
Virtual photo shoot is quite easily done, especially when conducted in a room with optimal natural lighting. However, most virtual photo shoots would not have the same quality as a tradiitonal photo shoots, and the sharpness of the image would depend largely on the internet connection and/or devices used by both the model and the photographer.
During the quarantine period, one of the ways to do a photo shoot is to do it on the terrace or driveway. This is most effective to keep your physical distance with the photographer. Terrace photo shoot was initially popular among influencers and celebrities, but more and more people are doing it these days.
To do a terrace photo shoot, the photographer would visit the model's house, then–while maintaining a safe distance–the photographer would capture the photos. The benefits of a terrace shoot is that everyone could enjoy a good photo session without requiring much preparations. Just like a traditional photo shoot, the results would turn out great compared to Virtual Shoots.
